What Is A Waste Compactor

Waste compactors are designed to reduce waste volumes of various waste materials. The machines work by compacting waste with compression. This pushes the waste together into smaller volumes that make it easier to recycle and reduces the number of waste collections needed to remove the materials. There is a range of waste compactors available for businesses to incorporate into their waste management plan. Compactor models come in all different shapes and sizes, and also for specific waste streams. Some are also able to handle mixed waste, meaning that you can find the perfect compactor for your needs.

Why Your Business Will Benefit From A Compactor

More Space

As you are compacting waste and reducing the volume, less space is needed making it much easier to store. This creates a speedier workplace and cuts labour time in managing waste materials. The compactors are also incredibly simple to use, and do all the work for you! Having large volumes of waste cluttered on the floor can also pose a big risk factor for your team's safety.

Fewer Collections

You will also have a much more efficient experience in removing the waste from the site, as waste collectors will be able to reduce the number of collections and transport the rubbish away quickly. Not only is this handy, but it also limits time for lorries on the road which in turn cuts your carbon footprint.

New Stream Of Revenue

If you are generating large amounts of recyclable waste regularly, waste management companies may even offer you rebates for the materials. In particular, plastic, cardboard, or paper bales are popular streams of revenue for many businesses across the UK.

The Environmental Benefits

When you use a waste compactor you are able to recycle your materials effectively. This is vital for organisations creating large amounts of waste that may have otherwise been chucked into bins or into landfills. Recycling waste also means that you can reintroduce products back into your sector, encouraging sustainability across your industry.
